As we savour the final days of summer – a pleasant prediction for the days of autumn, especially for Zoomers who love a long walk among the fall colours.
Chris Scott, the director of meteorology with The Weather Network says the afterglow of a scorching summer will mean a warm start to the fall season.
Scott says October and November temperatures in southern Ontario will fluctuate from above to below normal but will mostly stay on the warm side.
But we will probably need to brace for a colder and more snowy winter than last year’s extremely mild one.
Climatologist Dave Phillips from Environment Canada predicts that this will be a tougher winter for Torontonians and could feel brutal compared to last year.
